Eva Le Roi & Pierre Burquel: de Sao Paulo Biennale
The illustrator Eva Le Roi and the architect Pierre Burquel have been selected to participate in the XII International Biennale of Architecture of São Paulo, which will take place from September to December 2019 at the Centro Cultural São Paulo (CCSP).
With their project, Anatomy of Fragments, they will integrate Everyday Architectures, the main exhibition of the XII International Biennale of Architecture of São Paulo.
Their project proposes to examine through drawings the specific urban conditions of a city (São Paulo), where rapid growth and the overlap of multiple, even contradictory, dynamics have resulted in the creation of powerful urban landscapes. Complex situations of interdependence between infrastructure, urban development and landscape have become the support of everyday life. Their ambition is to investigate selected situations in various contexts without preconditions without preconditioned meaning and categories. Flatly, by eliminating the division between high and low culture, beauty and ugliness, the proposal is to reveal five « hybrid situations », « urban fragments » in terme of potentials for daily routines to take place.
